Cops Caught Using Photos of Black Men as Live Target Practice, Shooting Them in the Head
FLORIDA — A disturbing report has surfaced online according to which police officers were using photographs of black men for target practice with live ammunition.
A woman in the National Guard discovered that her brother’s mugshot was ripped to shreds by bullet holes when she was at a firing range used by police.
The target contained all and only black men and it was used for “shooting drills” by police in North Miami Beach, Florida, according to reports.
The photo with bullet holes was shown to the brother, Woody Deant, who was shocked to see that the officers had aimed directly at his forehead.
“The picture actually has bullet holes,” he said.
“One in my forehead and one in my eye — I was speechless.”
The Chief of North Miami Beach Police released an admission claiming that the officers should have used “better judgment.”
He denies that the officers used the photos of all and only black males for racist reasons, and reminded the public that the police department does have minority officers on staff.
He justified the use of the photos as a technique for drills to improve facial recognition by officers.

Still, many can’t help but wonder why the officers chose to use photos only of black males.
Woody Deant, one of the men in the pictures, was arrested when he was 15-yrs-old for racing his car, but is now a married family man. He is concerned about officer’s looking at his face as a target for shooting, remarking that the mind of an officers is automatically “going to think target, target, target.”
